    Form Collapse: If section is hidden, field within the tool cannot be edited on the advanced designer.

    Asked by domicu on March 10, 2017 at 01:56 PM

    I have already cleared your forms cache so you can see the if that works on your end too. You will also find my sample form on this link: https://form.jotform.com/70687054464967 

    If this is still not working on your end, please let us know.
